Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate implant stability after short-term immediate loading in a canine model.

Study design: The control group used in this study was immediate nonfunctional loading and the experimental group was immediate functional loading. Each group was measured for its periotest value (PTV) and bone-to-implant contact (BIC) ratio.

Results: Statistically significant differences in PTV and BIC ratio were not observed between the control and the experimental groups.

Conclusion: It was concluded that implant stability can be achieved even with immediate loading.
